SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV)— Chatham Unity in the Community hosted a chili cook-off at Coastal Empire Beer Co. Saturday.
The group, formed by local first responders, created the event to have proceeds from the cook-off benefit Savannah/Chatham County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and The Front Porch.
Savannah/Chatham County CASA recruits and trains volunteers to advocate for the best interests of children who have experienced abuse and neglect.
The Front Porch is a community-based risk reduction program designed to identify youth and families at risk of becoming involved with the court and link them to community resources to divert them from the court system.
Participants had the opportunity to win awards for best chili, cornhole tournaments, and raffles, and brewery tours.
